2.9. Uninstalling the FPGA Board

To uninstall an FPGA board for Windows, invoke the uninstall utility command, uninstall the Custom Platform, and unset the relevant environment variables. You must uninstall the existing FPGA board if you migrate your OpenCL™ application to another FPGA board that belongs to a different Custom Platform.

To uninstall your FPGA board, perform the following tasks:

  1. Following your board vendor's instructions to disconnect the board from your machine.
  2. Invoke the aocl uninstall <path_to_customplatform> utility command to remove the current host computer drivers (for example, PCIe® drivers). The Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ uses these drivers to communicate with the FPGA board.
  3. Uninstall the Custom Platform.
  4. Unset the PATH environment variable.
  5. Unset the AOCL_BOARD_PACKAGE_ROOT environment variable.
